Why I Love Gromit

Here are the reasons why I love Gromit to death:

-He reads Crime and Punishment.
-He knits.
-He says nothing but says everything.
-He says nothing but not silent.
-He never smiles but makes you feel warm.
-He has wall paper of meat bones in his bedroom.
-He is very relaxing while reading "Electronics for Dogs".
-He is brave, clever, resourceful and loving.
-Again, he knits.
-He does not like Cheese.
-He is more humane than human.
-He is a dog.
-I love dog.
-He remindes me of you in some facial expressions, or maybe the facial expressiveness.
-He makes me laugh even in painful times like this.
-He likes tea.

The first time I saw Gromit was with you, when we watched "Wallace and Gromit, The Curse of the Were Rabbit" together in the theater near Lincoln center.

In summary, I really love Gromit and feel thankful for the Brits who created it. It is sad to know that the warehousing for the models of A Close Shave and Wrong Trousers was burnt down last October. Lucky for us viewers that it has been captured forever on these short films.

In tough days, think of things that once or still makes me laugh, like Gromit, like you.

Don't know Gromit - but I'm glad he reads "Crime and Punishment".

It's the recurring story of modern life: job-less, money-less, love-less , root-less young person comes to the big city where he's nothing -- a stray dog -- a suspicious inconvenience -- nowhere to look but up. Why shouldn't he murder the stingy, sick old lady who lives next door -- if he'll get a few bucks ? Murder is the extreme case ---- so it makes for the most dramatic story -- but there's all the other things that such a person will do for no other reason than to survive and get a little bit ahead. Why not ? It's a dog-eat-dog world --
or ---
--- maybe it's a Christian world --- with its criminal savior/god -- and I don't think any other religion/ethical system offers as much (if any) compassion for the stranger who has no value other than being human.

As I recall it -- in my foggy memory -- that's the story of this novel --- and I think every young dog should read it.
